AS9145 Requirements for Advanced Product Quality Planning and Production Part Approval

This course is verified by Probitas as meeting the AS9104/3A requirements for Continuing Professional Development. Production and continual improvement of safe and reliable products is key in the aviation, space, and defense industries. Customer and regulatory requirements must not only be met, but they are typically expected to exceeded requirements. Due to globalization, the supply chain of this industry has been expanded to countries which were not part of it in the past and has complicated the achievement of requirements compliance and customer satisfaction.

Approach for an Assistance System for E-Bikes to Implement Rider-Adaptive Support

When riding an e-bike, riders are faced with the question of whether there is enough energy left in the battery to reach the destination with the desired level of support. E-bike users therefore have an existential range anxiety. Specifically, this describes the fear that the battery charge will be exhausted before there is an opportunity to recharge it and that it will no longer be possible to use the electric support. However, e-bike riders have so far had to decide for themselves whether the available battery charge is sufficient for riding the planned route or whether the desired destination can be reached. In this context, the challenge is to decide how much support can be used so that an appropriate amount of effort can be achieved for the entire journey. In order to assist e-bike riders with this problem, the objective of this paper is to present an approach towards an assistance system that provides rider-adaptive support over the entire journey of a defined route.

Charging infrastructure for employer parking – Real data analysis and charging algorithms for future customer demands

The mobility industry and the entire ecosystem is currently striving towards sus-tainable mobility which leads to continuous production ramp-up of electrified vehicles. The parallel increase of the charging infrastructure is faced with various challenges regarding needed investments and the connection into the electricity grid. MAHLE chargeBIG offers centralized and large scaled charging infrastruc-ture with more than 1,800 already installed charging points. This presentation and paper is evaluating the functionality of the system by ana-lyzing backend real data of various employer parking installations. It can be shown and proven that a single-phase charging concept is sufficient and able to manage most customer relevant charging events by considering the needs and limitations of the related electricity grid infrastructure. Smart charging algorithms enable the integration of the charging infrastructure in smart grid company environments.

FMCW Lidar Simulation with Ray Tracing and Standardized Interfaces

In pursuit of safety validation of automated driving functions, efforts are being made to accompany real world test drives by test drives in virtual environments. To be able to transfer highly automated driving functions into a simulation, models of the vehicle’s perception sensors such as lidar, radar and camera are required. In addition to the classic pulsed time-of-flight (ToF) lidars, the growing availability of commercial frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) lidars sparks interest in the field of environment perception. This is due to advanced capabilities such as directly measuring the target’s relative radial velocity based on the Doppler effect. In this work, an FMCW lidar sensor simulation model is introduced, which is divided into the components of signal propagation and signal processing. The signal propagation is modeled by a ray tracing approach simulating the interaction of light waves with the environment.
